Kathy Bolten and Jeff Eckhoff report:
An attorney for the man with whom former Des Moines schools superintendent Nancy Sebring had an affair has asked a Polk County judge to keep the man’s name out of court proceedings.
In the court filings, the man asks to join Sebring’s effort to obtain an injunction that would prohibit the Des Moines school district from releasing additional emails between Sebring and himself.
